  • Tony Moeaki misses entire preseason
    Bills TE Tony Moeaki missed the entire preseason with a hamstring injury.

    Advice: The Bills took an upside flier on Moeaki last December, but his continued inability to stay healthy will likely cost him his roster spot. Moeaki is only 27, but he's running out of NFL chances.

  • Gonzalez: Probably no chance I play again
    Tony Gonzalez said there is "probably no chance of me coming back to play."

    Advice: "I don't even want to play anymore. ... If it didn't happen up to this point, it's not gonna happen now," Gonzalez said. Predictably, the future Hall of Famer did say multiple teams contacted him this offseason. He caught 83 passes for 859 yards with eight touchdowns at age 37 last year, finishing as fantasy's No. 4 tight end.

  • Jacob Tamme a candidate for slot work
    Jacob Tamme is a candidate to get some slot work if Wes Welker (concussion) misses time.

    Advice: Emmanuel Sanders has tons of experience in the slot and would make the most sense there in the event of a Welker absence. But the Broncos would likely mix and match, with Tamme getting some packages. Still, our preferred stash here is Cody Latimer as the best red-zone threat and most talented player. He'd play outside while Sanders goes inside.

  • Dolphins waive six players
    Dolphins waived TE Brett Brackett, CB Steven Clarke, DE Rakim Cox, DT Cory Grissom, C Tyler Larsen and WR Ryan Spadola.

    Advice: A fourth-year undrafted free agent, Brackett caught five passes for 69 yards this preseason. He's never appeared in a regular-season game, and is unlikely to do so.

  • Dolphins send fifth-round TE Lynch to I.R.
    Dolphins placed TE Arthur Lynch on injured reserve with a back injury, ending his season.

    Advice: A fifth-round blocker, Lynch missed the entire preseason. He'll be back to compete for one of the Dolphins' final roster spots in 2015.

  • Packers cut TE Lyerla with injury settlement
    Packers waived TE Colt Lyerla with an injury settlement.

    Advice: Lyerla sees the open market after all. The Packers clearly weren't high on the UDFA out of Oregon after he showed next to nothing during camp. Lyerla is a plus athlete at 6'4/247 with 4.61 speed. But we wouldn't expect teams to come knocking down his door after Lyerla wasn't claimed off waivers the first time. Lyerla also isn't healthy after injuring multiple knee ligaments.

  • Bengals continue slashing roster
    Bengals waived TE Kevin Brock, QB Matt Scott, and WR Jasper Collins.

    Advice: Brock appeared in four games for the Chiefs last season before signing with the Bengals in the playoffs. Collins, a second-year undrafted free agent, drew some hype last summer as the "next Cecil Shorts" out of Mount Union. Scott was most famous for throwing up on the field in the Bengals' preseason opener.

  • Saints release TE Travis Beckum
    Saints released TE Travis Beckum.

    Advice: Beckum lasted just 12 days on the roster. The former No. 100 overall pick of the Giants has become an end-of-the-roster journeyman at this stage of his career.

  • Giants to use committee approach at tight end
    Coach Tom Coughlin conceded the Giants plan to use a committee approach at tight end.

    Advice: "That is not necessarily what the plan was," Coughlin said. "But the plan has evolved to that." The candidates appear to be Adrien Robinson, Larry Donnell, Daniel Fells, and Kellen Davis. Robinson is the athlete of the group, Donnell and Davis the blockers, with Fells able to do both but nothing better than average. The Giants are still sorting out the group. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy.

  • Ravens: TE Daniels still part of team's plans
    Speaking Monday, coach John Harbaugh said TE Owen Daniels remains part of the Ravens' plans.

    Advice: Coming back from a broken leg, Daniels missed two weeks with "leg soreness," and looked sluggish before going down. His relationship with OC Gary Kubiak is a big factor working in favor of his roster odds, however. Daniels is well off the fantasy radar, and not a threat to Dennis Pitta's TE1 status.

  • Lions claim TE Michael Egnew off waivers
    Lions claimed TE Michael Egnew off waivers from the Dolphins.

    Advice: The Lions have also claimed TE Emil Igwenagu from the Eagles. Egnew has shown absolutely nothing since being the No. 78 overall pick of the 2012 draft, and we wouldn't expect that to change in Detroit. It will be a victory if he makes it to final cuts.

  • Daniels (leg soreness) resumes practicing
    Owen Daniels (leg soreness) has resumed practicing.

    Advice: Daniels was sidelined nearly two weeks with nondescript "soreness," missing two preseason games. He's shaping up as little threat to Dennis Pitta's target totals. There's a chance he's left off the 53-man roster.

  • Rob Housler can't haul in lone target
    Rob Housler did not have a catch on one target in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.

    Advice: Tight ends are not featured pass-catchers in a Bruce Arians offense and Housler is a poor blocker. So it should surprise no one that he has just one catch for 38 yards this preseason and is tumbling down the depth chart.

  • Jermaine Gresham catches one pass Sunday
    Jermaine Gresham caught one pass for 33 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Tyler Eifert sat out, leaving Ryan Hewitt to pair with Gresham in the preferred "12" formations. The 33-yard grab up the seam was a fluke, as he didn't have a catch longer than 30 yards in '13. Gresham, an in-line blocker, is a poor bet to improve on last year's 46-458-4 line.

  • C.J. Fiedorowicz starts Saturday
    C.J. Fiedorowicz caught two passes for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

    Advice: Fiedorowicz started and caught both of his passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick, confirming he's ahead of Ryan Griffin for the in-line tight end job. Garrett Graham will be the "move" option. Through three preseason games, Fiedorowicz has three grabs for 27 yards and no touchdowns. He projects as a better real-life contributor than fantasy asset in Year 1 thanks to his blocking ability.

  • Lance Kendricks held without catch Saturday
    Lance Kendricks was held without a catch in Saturday's preseason game.

    Advice: He was targeted twice. Kendricks has four grabs for 35 yards through three exhibition contests. He's well off the fantasy radar as the Rams' No. 2 tight end.

  • Dolphins give up on 2012 3rd-rounder Egnew
    Dolphins waived TE Michael Egnew.

    Advice: One of ex-GM Jeff Ireland's seemingly countless misfires, Egnew was exposed as a product of Mizzou's spread offense quickly after the Dolphins made him a top-80 pick in the 2012 draft. It's particularly telling that the new Dolphins regime saw more potential in Arthur Lynch, Gator Hoskins, and Brett Brackett.

  • Owen Daniels still out with 'leg soreness'
    Ravens TE Owen Daniels remains sidelined indefinitely with "leg soreness."

    Advice: Daniels has now been sidelined a week, and will miss Saturday's regular-season dress rehearsal. The Ravens initially insisted Daniels was just "resting," but there's something else at play. ESPN's Jamison Hensley reported earlier this month that Daniels had "no burst getting off the line," and was having trouble "getting separation in training camp." It's quite possible Daniels isn't over the broken leg that wrecked his 2013. He's no threat to Dennis Pitta's target totals.

  • Packers UDFA TE Lyerla unclaimed on waivers
    Packers undrafted TE Colt Lyerla (knee) passed through waivers unclaimed and is now on injured reserve.

    Advice: Lyerla injured his knee earlier in training camp and was waived/injured Tuesday. He's an intriguing talent who could have drawn some looks on waivers. Considering he wasn't signed as a priority undrafted free agent, it's not a surprise he wasn't scooped up by another team. Lyerla will "redshirt" as a rookie.

  • Texans rookie TE C.J. Fiedorowicz impressing
    ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli observes third-round TE C.J. Fiedorowicz "can do everything."

    Advice: "Zero problems catching the ball," Ganguli added. The Texans and Broncos are holding joint practices this week, and Fiedorowicz continues to line up as the starting in-line tight end while getting red-zone work. He's an NFL-ready blocker and drew loose Rob Gronkowski comps coming out of Iowa. Coach Bill O'Brien plans to feature his tight ends. Fiedorowicz might be a waiver-wire favorite at some point. He's not yet worth drafting in standard-sized leagues.

  • Colt Lyerla could be moved to fullback?
    Packers TEs coach Jerry Fontenot believes TE Colt Lyerla (knee, injured reserve) could eventually be moved to fullback.

    Advice: Fontenot believes the move would "certainly (seem) to fit his wheelhouse." It's bizarre to hear of a 6-foot-4 tight end with 4.61 speed potentially being moved to fullback, but it's a moot point for 2014, as Lyerla will miss the entire season. There's a chance Lyerla will be riding the pine for another team, as he's been exposed to waivers after being waived/injured on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez acknowledges he's already been contacted about a comeback. "The temptation would be there, but I don't know what the gain would be,'' Gonzalez said. "I've always wanted a ring. ... But I'd be a mercenary to come in and get a Super Bowl ring, play with a team for, what, six, seven weeks?" Settling in nicely to his new role as a pundit for CBS Sports, Gonzalez has predicted the Broncos will go undefeated this season.

  • Packers waive/injure UDFA TE Colt Lyerla
    Packers waived/injured TE Colt Lyerla.

    Advice: He'll revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers. It's far from a guarantee, as Lyerla is one of this season's highest-upside undrafted free agents. Standing in at 6-foot-4, 247 pounds with 4.61 wheels, Lyerla is a potential mismatch. He only went undrafted because of (admittedly serious) character concerns. Recovering from a torn PCL and MCL, Lyerla is staring at "at least" six weeks of rehab, and likely more. He'd have a fighting chance at a roster spot next year if the Pack can get him through waivers and on I.R.
